SS CITY OF MILWAUKEE

The National Historic Landmark vessel S.S. City of Milwaukee is the last surviving traditional Great Lakes railroad car ferry.  These unique and sturdy vessels navigated the frozen and storm tossed inland seas caring passengers and entire freight trains for a century.   She is the last unmodified traditional railroad car ferry afloat upon the lakes, still with her triple expansion steam engine, original woodwork and brass fixtures. 
 

 
 


This SS City of Milwaukee model has the following qualities:

- Scratch built from official plans

- Hollow hull construction, (very important), weighing less than 10 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 40 lbs and feel like a toy rather than an art piece.)

- The hollow superstructure is comprised of
hundred of individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not several solid pieces stacking on top one another.

- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures

- >95% of parts are wood and metal
 

40"long x 13" tall x 7" wide     $2,900   S & H is $150  

                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                                   

 


 

This model [Bismarck] is really looking good! Thank you for the update.  When do you think it will be finished?

The other models [this one and the Milwaukee Clipper]you sold me are a constant enjoyment to my family. We have them on display at our lakeside house in Wisconsin. Thank you to you and your skilled craftsman.

Best regards,
Gene"
